    Welcome all coaches to another season of fierce competition in the SCS Premier League.

    SCS PL Hall of Fame

    2017: Creeker def IDIG

    2016: Bomber18 def IDIG

    2015: benderiffic def Goodie's Guns

    2014: Creeker def Rockydunlop

    2013: Mr_Arrogance def Moving Upward

    *I can't find the results prior to 2013 so please post if you know and I'll update accordingly

    Creeker won't have a chance to defend his title and IDIG won't be suiting up as 'bridesmaid' for PL again this year, maybe he'll wear that for the CL!

    Ins: Brettthejet, Deeman1, Rowsus, Ricky Bobby, PC & Erich1036
    Outs: Creeker, IDIG, Hard@it, MovingUpward, Zim^Zum & Monya Meow Meow

    Here's a summary of all 18 coaches in the PL for the upcoming season, including their latest formguide. I've allocated a seeding based on their 2017 performances.

    I am amazed I was invited to join again, thank you. Is interesting to note that no one (not noone!!) had a particularly high finish. We all have some room for improvement, I sure have!!!

    As for my seeding, will be getting the Seasol out and liberally water my team with it, unlike last year I hope it flowers in 2018.

    Brettthejet no 1 seed.......... I will hear about this at work all day tomorrow .

    I'll throw 20 on the Muppets for 2018. The great man is due for a big year. (top 100 overall for sure.)

    Have a great season fellas, great to have a opportunity in the CL, but will miss the mighty Premier League.
    Will be keeping a close eye on how the year goes in the SCSPL.

    In for another crack, feels like many of us had a "down" year last year... so here's to the rebound!

    Thank you for that THCLT! Very strong group this year as well.
    It's going to be very competitive again this year as a lot of coaches will be hungry and looking to bounce back!

    I choked last season to be out in straight sets after finishing top four. Gotta make better trades this year! All the best to all.

    Not sure how someone from div2 can be ranked no1 in this group of fine coaches.
    I think Ben and Tim can think themselves unlucky not to be ranked no1.
    Flattering, Yes. Expected, never in a million years. Good luck to all fellow PL coaches for the upcoming season.

    And blaze id be wrapped to finish 100th and finish last in this league.

    Being top ranked last year of the current coaches in this year's PL and being Premiers from Div 2 has endowed you with that privilege...no pressure!

    Stoked to be back in the PL this year. Such a tough league with so many well respected coaches.

    After an absolute shocker of a year last season... I will coming with a different approach and hopefully nab some of that elusive "Good Luck" along the way.

    A few people have observed that last season seemed to be a down year for many coaches.

    (1) Why do we think that is? and

    (2) Do you plan to change anything this year?

    ,

    In my case:

    (1) Upgrades were poor, eg Rocky, Lynch, Roo a few others I can't recall. The expectant good upgrades failed. Very unexpected.

    (2) Not starting O'Meara, Swallow, Roughead, Sicily types. Going as much as possible pure G's R's. Go for youth as upgrade material. Need fewer LTI's,.. this is just pure luck.

    (1) Missed out on good premium rookies (didn't start Marchbank, WHE, Witts) and had poor trade ins (Bont, Yeo late, Grundy, Goldy, Lynch, etc)

    (2) Start all the 80 avg 200k rookies and don't get too rigid with my keepers (looking good so far as I only have about 6-7 I'm happy with). Trade in the fallen premium.

    (1) Generally I think it was because well performed SuperCoaches are hard wired to pick scoring history over potential and there were a lot of high scoring players last year that did not have that history. I speak of the likes of Kelly, Oliver, Crouch, Kruezer even Dusty and TMitch to some extent. I suspect many were slow to trust these players because they were waiting for the usual downturn and it never came.

    On the flip side there were many players with a stellar history that did not score that well. I speak of Pendlebury, Jelwood, Fyfe was down for a lot of the year (but did recover late), even Ablett, Goldy and Gawn (to some extent).

    Finally I also think those that had been identified as the next wave of super-prems had poor years. I speak of Treloar and Bont (especially if you didn’t start him and double especially if you traded him in around round 8 - like me)

    (2). That is the $50,000 question. I don’t know yet and probably won’t until I finalise my team in the last week. My gut feel is that last year was somewhat of an outlier in this respect however am I brave enough to risk falling for the same trick two years in a row. Whilst I actually had a better year last year than the few previous I was guilty of some of the behaviour describe above.

    I doubt will we get another year with so much new blood in the top scorers however I will be very interested to see if last years crop back it up or whether a few of the old guard get back in there.

    1) We have a lot of Coaches on this site that walk a traditional route. Most years it holds them in good stead, last season it was a recipe for disaster. I think a compromise between last years value picks, and previous years of trusting history might be the way forward.

    2) I had a good plan last year, and it was working well for about two thirds of the season. I let myself wander off the road a little, and the wheels fell off really quickly. This year I intend to tighten the lug nuts, and stick to my guns!

    It's all about ladder positioning Rows, history doesn't count for much in this PL. If that was the case, I too would out of place amongst the names you've mentioned.

    Also, there history has been written and we're about to write ours...
